Tekken 7 was officially confirmed last night during EVO 2014 festivities. Most people already knew the announcement was coming after a video featuring producer Katsuhiro Harada was published early by AOL. Last night, we received official confirmation, plus a trailer alongside it.
Looking for gameplay? Look elsewhere, this is only a teaser. Check it out below.
While there’s no gameplay, we do know it will run on Unreal Engine 4. Harada explained the reasoning for picking the engine.
“The power and flexibility means that we can focus our efforts on making Tekken 7 the best possible game without worrying about spending time creating a stand-alone graphic engine,” Harada said. “With Unreal Engine 4, we could rapidly achieve visual quality expected on next-gen platform and go beyond it. Not only is Unreal Engine 4 powerful and easy to use, but it allows us to immediately bring Tekken 7 to any platform we desire.”
No platforms have been officially announced, but Xbox One and PS4 seem to be a lock. Maybe Tekken will show a little love towards the Wii U as well.
Also, if you missed out on the EVO finals for any game, IGN has a great round-up featuring all of them. I watched the Louffy/Bonchan Ultra Street Fighter 4 final as it happened last night and it was awesome.
